I must have learned something yesterday

Breakfast a la Brie - She got me hooked!
At least I am starting off on a better note. Kashi crunch with light and fit yogurt. Yum!

I have been feeling yuck lately. I feel like my body doesn't want to move and the laziness is really starting to annoy me. But not so much that I am doing anything about it. Hopefully this is rock bottom because I don't want to have to go buy bigger clothes! Especially with summer right around the corner.

Not my smartest...

Decision at 930 am but I am so hungry and it was in my desk.

Fill in the blank

1.   My most prized possession is       more sentimental than anything. Of course, the obvious choice would be my engagement/wedding rings but I'm going a different route. My Mama gifted me a hope chest that was hers when she was a little girl. It skipped my mom and has been handed down to me. Inside of it is a note that my Mama wrote back in the 80's about the chest and that it would someday be mine  .

2.  If I could be one age for the rest of my life, I would want to be    26. A grownup but still in "mid-20's", you have all the perks of being a grownup (hello cheap car insurance and rental cars!) but also can still be seen somewhat as a kid. I've since passed that age, but not by much!    .

3.  The best way to spend a weekend is    friday night with friends, saturday time at the shop, date night with the husband, wrapped up with errands and a nice dinner in on Sunday!  .

4.  My outlook on life is     if you always wait for good things to happen to you, you'll be waiting for a long time. Take your life in your hands and make the things you dream about, happen.  .

5.  If you want to annoy me, just     chew your gum with your mouth open. The smacking.... makes me want to smack you. And if I know you, I just might. (Please note my mom is probably laughing so hard she is crying right now. She knows this is true and finds it hilarious)  .

6.  I am completely defenseless when it comes to       chips. Tortillas with salsa, plain, with dip, doritos, salt and vinegar, kettle, barbeque, oh Lord I love them all. The crunch, the salt, they are making my mouth water just thinking about them. Hello, my name is Alisha. And I'm a chipoholic...   .

7.  When dressing for the day one should       put one foot in at a time. And wear what makes you feel fabulous :)    .

Katy Perry...

Katy Perry Collection in Teenage Dream
Really makes some great nail polish colors. I finally got my hands on some at the grocery store of all places. Teenage Dream is so pretty and girly and sparkly. I just love it. I also picked up the new Shatter polish and can't wait to use it. I have looked everywhere!

Update: Look how fun! I love it!

Spring is officially here!

There were 2 visitors who showed up today.

They are the true sign that Spring has Sprung. They visit us every year, the same 2 ducks, the same couple. Always together. I like to think of our tiny creek as their spring home.

Completely adorable.

We will just ignore the fact that it is supposed to drop to 40* this weekend. I don't buy it.

I did manage to run 2 times this week! And it's only Tuesday! (aka I ran yesterday AND today!)
2.25 miles yesterday for Couch to 5k Week 2 Day 1 and just a mile today around the block.
Monster hill tried to choke me again.
Seriously that hill makes me want to channel Skinny Runner because I totally want to punch running in the face! every time I try to take it on.

Feeling Spicy

Spicy Haruni that is :)

I got quite a bit of knitting done over the weekend and my Haruni Shawl is finally taking some shape!

Chloe crashed my photo session

Chart A - Lovely fern pattern

Chart B - Getting to my favorite part of the shawl- the edge!

While I am short on yardage, I think with a good blocking it will be plenty big enough for how I love to wear my shawls- neckerchief style tyed around the neck like a bib. Plus, the fern lace needs to be blocked out to showcase the pattern- right now it kind of resembles an egg carton! (See Photo 1 for visual)

1.   The best deal I've ever gotten is       um...our knife set? We had registered for a set from BBB but for some reason they were randomly discontinued at the store we were at so they gave us the newest set for the discounted price plus our registry discount and gift cards. They were pretty much free!

2.  If I were hosting a dinner party and could invite people from my fantasy guest list it would include    excluding all family and friends it would be Ysolda Teague, Ree Drummond, The characters from Big Band Theory, Kathryn Heigl, Daniel Ratcliffe, Nathan Lane, oh goodness, that is quite a random list.

3.  Something that inspires me is    infectiously motivated people. You know the kind. The kind that can discuss their passions to the point of motivating and inspiring you to want to run out and do something!

4.  If I could only choose to eat one flavor of food for the rest of eternity (sweet, salty, spicy, bitter....) I would have to go with     this would be one of the most awful choices to ever make! I'd probably go with spicy.

5.  I dream about     random things. Who knows what they all mean. Typically lots of action, or parties, and a good mix of celebrities as well as people I know interacting together Some nightmares but rarely.

6.  My weekend will be spent       relaxing tonight, maybe a mani/pedi? Then girl's night tomorrow for dinner and The Adjustment Bureau .

7.  If I could only  watch one movie or TV show for the rest of my life, it would be       Grey's Anatomy would be the TV show. Or maybe Private Practice- Grey's did have 1 pretty terrible season (I'm looking at you Izzie and Ghost Denny!).

{a happy little photographic accident}

1.   My biggest accomplishment in life thus far is       graduating college, getting a great job, getting married, and owning a house. That's more than one thing obviously, but I think they are kind of a package deal for my mid-twenties that I'm damn proud of. And there are 2 potted plants that are still alive in my kitchen after more than a year- this is a HUGE accomplishment!

2.  My favorite place to sit in my house is    the "coma chair". It's a large oversized chair with an ottoman by the window- next to the Christmas tree when it is up. It's highly comfortable, a great knitting spot, and usually ends up falling into a deep sleep. Thus, the coma chair.

3.  My fashion philosophy is    classic with a little bit of sass. I am not trendy by any means and feel silly in some of the crazy fashion trends. While I love looking at them in the magazines, they just look wrong on me. Give me nice trousers or great fitting jeans, simple but colorful tops and a fantastic hand-knit shawlette and I'm good to go!.

4.  Something every girl should have is     a sense of humor and a good attitude. They don't look bad on anyone and are necessary for getting through life!

5.  If you looked in my purse right now you'd find....     my new camera, wallet, 2 cell phones (work and personal) a million gift cards, a BBW body perfume roller, chapstick, knitting, book.

6.  My favorite music right now is       Mumford and Sons. I just love them .

7.  My favorite part of my body is       my eyes. I am lucky to have nice, thick (but not too thick) dark eyelashes and I think the color of my eyes is a great shade of green with just a hint of gold that comes out with certain outfits. I used to wish I had brown eyes... why? I have no idea!

1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
2. Wish by Alexandra Bullen
3. Mockingjay by Suzanna Collins
4. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

I'm finally finished with that series. While I like it- the plot, the way the story unfolded- It took a painfully long time to get through. Seriously- it took a month.

Moving on to the next story- I have started The English American by Alison Larkin. Already I'm 5 chapters in and only read it during lunch yesterday. An easy read to pick me back up and get me on the bookmobile again.

I made it back safe and sound but not without incident. After a monster storm that threatened to flood the airport, 2 flight delays, a cancellation, and a butt-crack of dawn early flight. I have made it back.

I had the absolute best time during our long weekend in Manhattan.

Recap later- I'm too tired!


PS- Emily: I was brave and wore my red lipstick!
